New phone line to be launched to book blood tests at Mildenhall Health Centre




A dedicated phone line is being launched for patients looking to book blood tests in Mildenhall.

West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, which operates the blood test clinic at Mildenhall Health Centre, recently introduced an appointment-only system for blood tests.

Bosses at the trust said the move was to 'help avoid unpredictable waits for patients when coming for tests, and to help ensure social distancing'.
